signet ring adenocarcinoma - specialists

Hi all,

I am looking to help my sister has signet ring adenocarcinoma, stage 3A. We are looking for doctor in US or UK who specializes in this specific cancer.

Also, looking to see know what treatments she can have post regular 5FU etc. she could not take more than 4 sessions due to reoccuring abscess in the abdomen.

thank you all,

Nilesh

    Sorry
    Sorry to hear of your sister's diagnosis. MD Anderson I've heard many people talking about, also Cancer Treatment of America, but there are a lot of good hospitals in the US for treatment. Others will chime in where they have gone. Good luck to both of you. You sound like a very caring brother. That has to mean a lot to your sister.

    Karmanos Cancer Center
    Karmanos is one of a few cancer centers. They have a full line of mds and many of them are professors of oncology for Wayne State University. WSU is really having success in their research dept. It's located in Detroit, MI

    Yup
    Should have mentioned Karmanos since I'm from the Detroit area - duh :) They are a great center.
